Baking Cookies in Silver Birch
We are all busy taste testing, designing and baking cookies in Year 3 this week, trying our best to find our inner Great British Bakers!
We carried out an investigation in Maths which involved finding out which numbers had a remainder of just 1.
Mayflower 400 Writing Competition
We have been writing poems about the sea using similes and descriptive language. Some of our class poetry has been chosen to be entered into the citywide Mayflower 400 writing competition.
As a school, each class chose a winner from their three entries and we held a whole school assembly to celebrate and share each winner's work.
Our overall class winner was Lewis with his fantastic 'Stormy Seas' poem.
The sea is roaring like a wild animal below me.
The crashing waves throw me from side to side likely to send me to a dark, black watery grave.
I'm pushed from side to side on the shipwreck.
The deafening waves roared like an injured lion.
What is beyond the horizon.....?
Welcome to the start of the new school year to all in Silver Birch.
The children have been hard at work with their learning this week and settling in really positively to life in Year 3
I wanted to share some of the super ideas where the children have been using conjunctions to extend their simple sentences.
I didn't go to bed at the end of the day because I wanted my tooth to fall out so I could get some money!
I was tired at the end of a long day but I could still eat dripping, scrumptious cooked marshmallows.
I didn't want to go to bed at the end of the day so I snuck into my baby cousin's room and played with her happily.
